The Governing Board of Directors has the complete responsibility of carrying out the terms of our charter contract and for managing the school as provided in our charter and in a manner consistent with the Constitution of the United States.
The Governing Board of Directors consists of nine voting members, each serving a three year term. In addition to the nine voting members, the school Principal serves as an ex officio (non-voting) board member. In each school year, three members reach the end of their terms and six members remain. This provides a continuity of governance and experience while also allowing for new membership each year.
Elections for the open positions are held each fall in accordance with the election process outlined in the bylaws. The offices of President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary are elected annually by the Board.
